The nuclear reactor story
The nuclear reactor story
From the discovery of radioactivity, associated with the names of Henri Becquerel, Marie Curie or Ernest Rutherford, to the transformation of atoms, nuclear power today provides clean energy.
The atomic model was developed by Ernest Rutherford in 1911 and explained in more detail by his student Niels Bohr ("Quantum Leap"). Nuclear fission was finally discovered and recognized in 1938. This leads to the release of energy. The first atomic chain reaction succeeded in 1942 and then led to the dropping of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. The world's first nuclear reactor meltdown occurred in the Ottawa Valley on December 12, 1952. This accident was like a shock wave around the world. Future US President Jimmy Carter was a nuclear engineer in the Navy at the time and helped with the cleanup.
Even though nuclear energy can be inherently destructive, today nuclear energy serves as a clean and safe method of energy production. The first nuclear reactor to generate electricity was in the Soviet Union, in Obninsk. This was in 1954. A year later, the first nuclear submarine of the US Navy went into operation. Submarines in particular benefited from nuclear energy, as batteries were not powerful enough. Soon the boom of nuclear energy began. Today, new nuclear power plants are planned, built and operated almost worldwide.
Nuclear power plants are an important contribution against climate change, and they are safer today than ever before. The upward trend in the price of uranium also shows how important this type of energy production is in a world that wants to reduce CO2 emissions. Uranium and uranium companies are therefore coming more and more into focus. In the USA, Uranium Energy is one of them with its various uranium projects, some of which have already been approved. A processing plant in South Texas completes the portfolio, along with various holdings in uranium assets.
IsoEnergy's - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gn9fk-ARE8A - projects are located in the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan, with the Laroque property standing out as particularly promising.
